Santarém - City of the Rivers

Tell me, what's a river without fish? And is there a fish more famous than the tucunaré, alias peacock bass? Not in the Amazon .. and we have lots of different species of fish. A display of replicas of Amazonian animals on the newly inaugurated orla is attracting a lot of attention, especially with the kids. On a walk there late this afternoon, I couldn't believe the number of parents taking pictures of their children. I never saw so many digital cameras in my life! Good sign, I must say.

Impressive that they did it in a short period of time. Remmeber when I was there, they were still putting estacas.

By the way, nice fish.
